Powering on machines.....
Does anyone have any good suggestions on powering up PCs without the use of an actual power switch connected to the motherboard?
I've looked into power on on keyboard press but this only seems to apply to USB keyboards (same with the power on by mouse)
I've looked into WOL, there seems to be only a few programs ive found that actually work on a subnetted network and the only decent ones seem to cost money
Our PCs are a little different to the conventional schools, we have the PCs mounted on boards and hidden in cupboards instead of cases so currently we have power switches onto the 2 pins on the board and there just hidden in the boxes......not very fun when we have to go around turning PCs on (there all set to boot on power fail which works 95% of the time but we want to be able to shut everything down over holidays/night time and then just power it all back on in the morning without the fuss of having to open up the boxes)
